CELEBRATE                                                     FRIENDSHIPS

             **************MORE ADDITIONS  Saturday afternoon ********************
I just wanted to share some more friends pictures that I believe you will enjoy. 

This is a 4 page layout using the Wings paper pack from CTMH.  In the picture you will see
that Julie and I are scrapbooking together.  Actually we are making these very layouts before we even have the pictures.  As friends we have done several of these workshop times together.
We often would do the workshops together.  We would do the prepwork ahead of time and put the workshop together with finishing touches or new techniques when we got together.

This page we used the Spray Pen from CTMH with re-inker inks to create a splatter look.  The picture does not show the details well.  These pages are stunning in person.
I loved the Wings paper pack!  Thanks Julie for great workshop times together.
And for being a fast learning student!  You have ventured out into
new areas that I have yet to explore and are doing fabulous:) 

         **************NEW ADDITIONS Saturday Morning*************

Start off first by adding yourself as a member and commenting on my posting.  If you really like my artwork, I will send you a handmade card from my stash.  First TEN  members who comment will be sent a handmade card from me so leave your email address too so I can email to get an address to send the card.  Sorry its not card candy but this way... 10 people will be winners!  AWESOME!

I am so glad that I can finally add some of the creations that I did not have yesterday because my computer was giving me fits.  This is not a recent creation but it was for a friend and I absolutely loved it.  I created this card completely from my own design after putting a few ideas together in my head.
It has real shingles and a real window with curtains, flowers and shutters.  Notice the chimney on the right in the back.

Here is a close up of the window and curtains.

This card was made for a friend who was moving.  I added a few cute "household items" inside:)

They have a dog so I decided to add him.  It says... WILL MISS YOU. 


*********************Added on Friday and REVISED*****************

The first card is a cute card that can be used for any occassion.  Some special features of this card are:  Yes I used Unity Stamps- Stamp of the Week.  I also used Claire paper and Out Door Demin card stock from Close To My Heart (CTMH) for which I am a consultant so if you need anything... let me know.  Simple and quick.

 This card is great for a friendship card.  I used CTMH Chantilly paper.  I also used a glitter pen to trace all around the flowers and other shapes so that in person, it has that extra sparkle.  The red sparkle gems are CTMH

This card is a birthday card for one of our boys birthdays this month.  We have 3 birthdays in March.  The inside says... Have a fabulous birthday!  This stamp was also a Unity SOTW (stamp of the week).  I embossed around the glasses and added CTMH's liquid glass for lenses and it really shines.  The button brads are from CTMH witha  little added liquid glass to make them sparkle too.
 This is another birthday card for another son.  I really had fun making these cards.  This card I used Avonlea paper that is currently in the Idea Book for CTMH but will be gone with this issue.  I also used chocolate brads and ribbon also from CTMH.  I absolutely love the HAPPY BIRTHDAY stamp, it is just so elegant. 

 The color is much richer in person.  The purple (smokey plum card stock from CTMH)  is bright and beautiful in person.  The paper is from CTMH's For Always paper pack.  I wound the ribbon up at the end to create a flower and added black glitter glue to "create" small brads.  I should have added them before I laid the layer down, but did not think of it until it was already added.  I really dont like brads to show on the other side, just my preference. 

I have several other pictures but I had trouble with my computer this morning and now
 I am at work.   Please come back later to see what more I have! 
Thank you Julie for inviting us and thanks to all of you who have taken time to come visit.
